Yeah, the enemy is a wonderful bunch, using retarded people

and kids to attack our troops.
The four Marines were killed in two separate explosions near the town of Sangin. Lance Corporal Fellows died in the first blast after a patrol triggered a booby-trap bomb; one hour later, a second patrol, which had been called to help, was hit by a bomb concealed in a wheelbarrow being pushed by a 13-year-old boy.

The bomb was hidden under newspapers and detonated remotely, killing the three other Marines. A senior officer said the boy had approached the patrol with a ‘broad smile on his face’.

‘We do not know if he even knew he was a suicide bomber – whether it was a smile of innocence or malice,’ he said
Yes, they're Brits, and I did say 'our troops'; they're over there with us.

The rest of the article focuses on PM Brown playing Churchill; I'll let someone else speak to that:
But the comparison to Winston Churchill prompted a ferocious response from Tory MP Nicholas Soames, Churchill’s grandson.

‘He is not fit to lick my grandfather’s boots,’ said Mr Soames. ‘One is a party hack and the other is our greatest-ever national leader.

‘My grandfather led a charge at the Battle of Omdurman; Brown didn’t even have the courage to call a General Election.’
That's got to smart, just a bit.
